Levi passed away after an accident at the vet hospital while he was getting castrated. He was a stunning buckskin colt out of a World Champion producing dam, and by Dont Skip Zip.  He was exceptional in every single way. His full brother, Lance, can be seen in the Foals of 2008.  One half sister maternally to this boy is a WORLD CHAMPION in 2 year old Western Pleasure (ABRA) and is already a multiple point earner and major futurity winner, and another half sister placed top 3 multiple times at buckskin worlds and is an AQHA point earner in WP.

Oak Hill Farm’s  great broodmare, Reba, passed away as a result of a colic on Memorial Day weekend.

TYLER
 

July 10, 1996 to October 7, 2007

Oak Hill Farm’s  "best friend", Tyler, passed away peacefully in his sleep October 7, 2007. Tyler had been with his mom since he was 6 weeks old and hand-picked from several litters of Sheltie puppies.

Tyler was a joy to be around. He was sensitive and undemanding of his owner's time. However, he was proud to be the "lead dog" of the household and always maintained that position! He will be missed by his family at OAK HILL FARMS.

 Chester was injured while in training and was humanely euthanized.  He was a stunning 16.1 hand gelding that was ready to take to the shows and WIN!  Chester wanted nothing more than to please you, and he will be greatly missed at Oak Hill Farms. A special thanks to Trainer Alisa Breedlove of Georgia for all their help, hard work and dedication to Chester during his last year. Top photos taken in May, 2007.  Photo below taken in 2004..

Oak Hill Farm’s “Best Friend” JACK passed away Saturday, March 31, 2007 of a sudden heart attack. He was 4 years and 1 month old. Anyone who met Jack knew that he lived life to the fullest. He loved chasing cats, running with the horses down the fence line, eating (his favorite past-time) and laying in his personal pool during spring/summer. Nothing was done in slow-motion by Jack!

Jack's pedigree is stellar. He is by CH Marinburg’s RepoMan (DPCA National Best of Breed 2002 and Westminster’s Best of Breed 2001. RP was also the National #1 Doberman 2000 and #2 Doberman 2001). Jack was purchased out of California as a 4 month old puppy and flew to Dallas to join our family. He ensured that he was an integral part of our home from the day he arrived. He enjoyed sleeping at his mom’s feet during her work day and following her outside after hours to ensure that all the chores were done to his satisfaction. He was a fabulous protector – no one that didn’t know Jack would get out of their car until they were greeted by a family member.

Jack will be missed by his Oak Hill Farm Family. We are comforted in knowing that his last day was spent doing some of his favorite activities: running the horse fence line – laying in his pool – and playing with his canine companions Redd Dawg and Tyler.

1982 to March 21, 2007

Gold Summer Flower was the cornerstone of my broodmare band joining my family over 13 years ago. She had a kind and trusting spirit, was a wonderful mother to her offspring, and was a trusted friend to me. Over the last 14 years of her life Summer gradually lost her sight and lived the last 5 years 100% blind. Summer’s pasture mate during her time with my family was Dessau Dolly; Dolly served as her “seeing eye companion” and they were inseparable for the past 13 years. Due to increasing issues with her advancing age, Summer was euthanized on March 21. She will be greatly missed by her family here at Oak Hill Farms.

Summer was an AQHA & PHBA point earner in western pleasure and halter, as well as an AQHA and APHA point producing broodmare. She is pictured below on right with triple registered (AQHA, PHBA, APHA) 2003 colt by Zippos Old Gold. She is pictured below left in 2005. Photo below showing in the mid-1980's with then owner, Kirk Boutte. Kirk showed Summer to all of her points in AQHA and PHBA, and was kind enough to share this photo with us.

Her foals included:

  • 2003 AQHA/PHBA/APHA Colt - OLD GOLDS TRIPLEPLAY - by: Zippos Old Gold. APHA Point earner.

  • 2002 AQHA Gelding - OLD GOLDS SUPERSTAR - by: Zippos Old Gold.

  • 2001 AQHA Gelding - SUMMERS OLD GOLD - by: Zippos Old Gold.

     Tommy was a stunning buckskin colt out of a proven cross. His full brother was Reserve Champion at the N.S.B.A. futurity at the buckskin worlds as a yearling, and WORLD & RESERVE WORLD CHAMPION as a 2-year-old. This one-of-a-kind colt was in training for the 2-year-old futurities when he suffered a severe bought of colic thought to have been brought on my the heat wave that hit Texas in the summer of 2006. The Buckskin Association lost a potential point-earning prospect as well as a great junior stallion with the loss of this well-bred colt. Tommy will be greatly missed.  Photos above taken in April, 2006 - photos below just after birth.
